Excellent article!

In addition there is some research that seems to say that organic produce contains a higher level of nutrients than non organic. http://www.organic-center.org/news.pr.php?...ssrelease_id=22

That tends to make sense to me when you consider that organic produce is usually grown with more sustainable practices. Plants or trees tend to be placed further apart to take capture more soil light and water per plant, and they tend to be farmed with a view toward preserving the land they're grown on. For organic farmers there is no quick fix for the soil, no chemical fertilizer they can spray or spread so they're more careful when it comes to preserving their land for the next crop. You also have the knowledge of knowing you're contributing to the continuation of those earth wise processes by buying organic.
